Tony Toni Tone – The Blues lyrics

You know what fellas? What?
I wanna get this beat. Pull out them drums loud.
I wanna hear them kickin'.
Kick it so loud they kick 'em way back in Mississippi.
Like that? Aw, yeah, like that.
All you ever give me is the blues.
C' mon fellas, let's do this.

Spendin' all my time trying to show how I feel when there is so much I can do.
Oh, I wanna please you. (Yeah.)
You say you care for me, but you don't act that way.
C'mon, girl, who you trying to fool.
Tell, Dwayne.
Just when I try to fill you what I can do for you, I feel like I'm wasting my time.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I can't see myself without you.
That's why I hang around.
All you ever give me is the blues.

Girl, you know I'm spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
Oh, I wanna please you.

Every time I see you, girl, (Why?)
All I wanna know is how I may get next to you.
Oh, I wanna please you.
There's got to be a way.
I'm thinking every day.
C'mon, girl, please give me a clue.
Tell, Dwayne.

Just because he drives a Porsche (Yeah) and I just drive a note, But what about the man inside.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Oh, if that is what you're into,
Why don't you let me know instead of always giving me the blues.

Girl, 'cause you know I'm spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
Oh, I wanna please you.
C'mon, y'all.
Clap your hands.
Everybody clap your hands.
Oh, I wanna please you.
Boys, help me out.
Oh, I wanna...

Blues. Blues. Blues. Blues.
Blues. Blues. Blues. Blues.

Spending all my time pleasing you.
I've always been true.
Why you wanna give me the blues.
Spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
You're always on my mind all the time, (Spending all my time pleasing you.) Every day, every night. (All you ever give me is the blues.) Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Spending all my time pleasing you.
All you ever give me is the blues.
I tried 20 times (Spending all my time pleasing you.), And you never cross my mind.
(All you ever give me is the blues.)
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
(Spending all my time pleasing you.)
For my money worked, what can I do for you.
All you ever give me is the blues
